The Clash‘s Mick Jones and Topper Headon have appeared onstage together for the first time in 25 years.

Jones‘ new band Carbon/Silicon, formed with Generation X‘s Tony James, were joined by the drummer at London’s Inn On The Green (February 11), where they rounded off the night with the Clash classics ‘Train In Vain (Stand By Me)’ and ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go?’.

Headon developed a heroin addiction in the early 80s and left the band in 1982 when his performances began to suffer, after an ultimatum from the band.

Among those watching Jones and Headon reunite were Glen Matlock, Viv Albertine and Don Letts.

Carbon/Silicon are performing at the Ladbroke Grove pub for the next six Friday nights (excluding January 18). Tickets are available from the bar on the day of performance.
